Old Time Oven Peach Cobbler

This quick and easy peach cobbler recipe is a delightful dessert that comes together with just five simple ingredients. It’s a perfect way to enjoy the sweet taste of peaches in a classic, comforting dish. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of self-rising flour (If you only have all-purpose flour, add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt to make it self-rising.)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ½ cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 (29 ounce) can of sliced peaches in heavy syrup, undrained


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the sugar and flour. Add the milk slowly to prevent clumping and stir until well combined.
  3. Melt the butter and pour it into a 9×13 inch baking dish. Pour the flour and milk mixture over the butter. Do not stir.
  4. Spoon the peaches and syrup evenly over the batter. Again, do not stir.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the cobbler is set.
  6. Serve warm, ideally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Recipe Tips:

  • For a richer flavor, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter.
  • If you prefer a less sweet cobbler, you can reduce the amount of sugar in the batter.
  • Toasting some pecans or walnuts and sprinkling them on top before baking adds a lovely crunch.
  • This cobbler can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days and reheated in the microwave or oven.

Enjoy this delicious and easy peach cobbler, a perfect dessert for any occasion that brings the classic taste of Southern comfort food to your table.
